Margaret Hill Vineyard
2016 MARGARET HILL VINEYARD KUDO HEATHCOTE SHIRAZ
RRP $100 / 2034
Ripe and raisiny, but savoury too, the real decider a surge of ripe, smoky tannin, the carpet on which the fruit rides. You could dismiss this wine for its sweet exuberance, but truth is there are many tricks to this pony. Sandalwood, clove and dark earth notes add features to the landscape of fruit. Robust in nature, svelte by design. CM 14.5% alc.
